4.0 out of 5 stars Brief novels or shortstories here. January 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The only negative I found is the length of each work . . . all were more short stories moreso than novels. As to the enjoyment factor, I did . . . each of the stories were well written and captivating, I had to force myself to lay the works down rather than read each story line from start to fininsh.

With all that said, I would recommend this work as a good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Been there done that? January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the price it was worth it however I felt that the scenarios were very much 'been there done that'. Felt like it was written using a template from other murder mysteries with different characters and then some weird ideas that I'm not sure worked. Club death was particularly bad for me. The writing itself was very good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down & Dirty: A McCray Crime Collection April 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
They were great stories, but I wish they were a lot longer. For instance, Trey and Darc, that would be a great book with more stories. I would buy those books. It was totally different from all the rest and it made me laugh at some parts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Variety
Sometimes when you read a collection, the stories all sound about the same, but not in this one. Each story is distinct with unique characters and interesting to the end.
